Nokia Set to Release Two Patches to Fix Lumia 800 Power Issues

Nokia has promised to deliver two software patches that will fix power issues that have plagued its Windows Phone 7 based Nokia Lumia 800 device.

The device, launched in the UK only a week ago, will receive one update in December followed by another in January, as reported (opens in new tab) by the Inquirer.

"We understand that some people have expressed concerns about battery life on the Nokia Lumia 800. Early investigations show that the majority of people are enjoying the full Nokia Lumia experience without any problems," said Nokia in its support forums.

"A software update in early December will include improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces further enhancements to battery life and battery charging," it informed.

Recently, the company announced that the Lumia 800 sales in the UK were the highest ever in the history of Nokia. However, this did not stop analysts from cutting down the sales forecast for the device.

The Lumia 800 has been getting rave reviews from all quarters and looks like Nokia and Microsoft have hit jackpot with the device. But analysts continue to lower their expectations of the device, citing lack of significant innovation and the fact that Apple just launched the iPhone 4S.
